Assess the Guelph-Wellington food environment
This project will provide baseline data by mapping the state of access to nutritious food and community food assets in Guelph-Wellington. We’ll incorporate on‐the‐ground research, surveys and GIS mapping. We’ll also take advantage of the Guelph Family Health Study, which is testing new ways for families and children to learn healthy habits early. By using big-data techniques to analyze all this information, we’ll be able to understand what we have and where the gaps lie—and we’ll make that information freely available through a public dashboard.
